Integrated rod-style programmable motion control
The ICR Plus linear rod-style SmartActuator from Tolomatic is a fully programmable integrated actuator for complex industrial motion-control applications requiring 100% duty-cycle performance.
The ICR Plus integrates a programmable digital drive, servomotor and actuator in a compact all-in-one package to deliver maximum flexibility for low- to medium-force applications. At half the price of traditional electric systems, the SmartActuator ICR Plus can be built to order and ready to ship in five days from factory order, the company says.
The SmartActuator ICR Plus model operates on either 24 or 48 Vdc and accepts signals from PLCs, sensors or an existing motion controller. The integrated digital drive features a flexible indexer programming environment capable of solving the most complex application challenges. With CANopen and DeviceNet communications capabilities, the ICR Plus can be daisy-chained with up to 127 other units.
Incorporating Tolomatic’s Endurance Technology features for long service life with no maintenance, the ICR Plus is said to combine a powerful servomotor with a rugged ball screw housed in a sturdy aluminum extrusion. Two screws can be selected, providing up to 80 lb of continuous force (150 lb peak) for speeds up to 23 ips, or up to 200 lb continuous force (400 lb peak) for speeds up to 9 ips. Maximum stroke length is 24 in.
